The North Riding County Football Association, also simply known as the North Riding FA, is the governing body of football in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Its headquarters are located in the town of Stokesley, seven miles south of Middlesbrough. Affiliated members pay a fee commensurate with the level of competition they play in. Affiliated members benefit from access to support and guidance on such areas as health and safety and access to finance or grants. The County FA is directly responsible for the governance of County Cup competitions.[1]

Membership[edit]

Clubs located within the geographical area of the old North Riding of Yorkshire boundaries are eligible for affiliation to the Association, including those participating at the higher levels of the Football League System in England. Clubs who enter teams into Saturday and Sunday competitions are required to have a separate affiliation for each. The Association consists of two District Associations and six Saturday and Sunday leagues covering the old North Riding of Yorkshire, as well as eight Junior leagues and three Women & Girls leagues.[2]

Membership of the governing council of the County FA is allocated among five geographic divisions and the proportion of councillors in each is determined by the relative size of each division. The divisions are Whitby to Redcar with 3 members; Grangetown to Thornaby with 4 members; Northallerton and Dales with 2 members; Scarborough & District Association with 1 member and the York & District Association with 2 members.[3]
